The Story of Libre – Lancaster County – Libre Law

Libre’s Story

Last July, Libre was saved from an Amish dog-breeding facility in Lancaster County. The 4-month-old bug-eyed pup was suffering from a host of ailments including sepsis and mange. Thanks to his rescue team, Libre is healthy, happy and hopping through fields with his family.

The Rescue of Libre

Dextin Orme was the one to find Libre. He took Libre out the the awful situation he was in and instantly went looking for help.

Jennifer Nields, a former humane officer, helped Dextin take the right steps to save Libre’s life. She took him to the founder of Speranza Animal Rescue in Mechanicsburg who had the right connections to bring this awesome dog back from the brink.




Dr. Ivan and Sharon Pryor at Dillburg Veterinary Center saved Libre. He fought against all odds and made a great recovery.

Speranza Animal Rescue

Libre and Janine Guido (owner of Speranza Animal Rescue) formed a strong bond during his treatment. Naturally, Janine took Libre in and he is very happy with his furever home.

Speranza Animal Rescue takes in surrendered animals, dogs on the euthanasia list at kill-shelters, and animals in unimaginable cases of abuse, neglect and misfortune.  Speranza takes on cases regardless of the medical costs associated and provides all of the top-notch veterinary care. They accept dogs with behavioral issues that most rescue organizations won’t consider.

Each animal is treated for any ailments. The animals adjust over-time. Evaluations of the animal will determine if it needs rehabilitation or if it can be adopted to a loving family.

Libre Law

Thanks to all of these caring individuals, a very special story will now help prevent and save many other animals from going through the same experience as Libre.  This June, legislation passed “Libre’s Law” which updates existing statutes and increases the penalties for abusing an animal.
